This trail was a pleasant surprise! It is a well maintained trail traversing the forest of a Baltimore County park. The path follows lovely streams, passes a beautiful pond, overlooks the swimming lake where the quarry used to be, and meanders through forests dense with mountain laurel and deciduous trees. We spotted a deer along the way.
While much of the path is level, there are enough ups and downs to give a bit of a workout. A hiking pole isn't necessary, but would have been welcome on a couple of the steeper declines and as balance crossing streams.
It is a trail I'd like to do in four seasons. An enjoyable afternoon outing, all in all. My only regret is that I didn't check it out sooner!
On a hot summer day, I'd suggest hiking early and spending the afternoon relaxing/swimming at the lake. There's a charge for swimming, but the trails are free.
